Welcome to another edition of Morning Sip.

Let me set the scene. In my 30s, my Mother dropped some knowledge I can’t forget. It’s was always the ones that had shock value. Surprise! Her advice was not to date men you age. Men only mature in their 50s. That’s how I came up wth this dating a boy versus a man topic.

I reached out to girlienation to get their take, to see if they had those experiences to draw on and share, and decide whether or not my Mother was telling the truth or not.

These are my takeaways:

  1. As a woman, you are attracted to different things than when you were younger
  2. We go through this journey of finding and defining our types based on the schmucks we meet in life
  3. A boy is always the one you fantasize marrying someday just because he’s cute.
  4. A grown ass man will make you a better version of yourself.

My absolute fave is the after-hours portion following each episode. Each week I ask listeners one question. This week’s question: In one sentence or less, what does your undies say about you?
